According to Amiry, Sheikh Salih's manor, along with other Barghouti family palace compounds, "was strongly influenced by urban architecture" in light of its "majestic scale, ornate fine stone work and the introverted spatial organisation." The manor, which has a rectangular ground plan, roughly measures 23 meters by 34 meters. An open courtyard occupied the central position of the manor. Amiry, 1987, p. 104. The courtyard was mostly enclosed by four partially open arcade (Arcade (architecture))s known as ''riwaq (riwaq (arcade))s'' which either serves as stables or storage. Amiry, 1987, p. 108. The main gate of the palace consists of two arches, with one being built within the other. According to Sharon, while this gate structure was common among village manor (Manor house)s in the area, the gate of Sheikh Salih's palace was "particularly monumental" as the arch was pointed and contained one keystone (Keystone (architecture)). The entire arch was constructed in the ''ablaq'' style with alternating black and white stone. A large, heavy and decorated wooden door is fitted into the gate and it was used to receive vehicles or large loads while a smaller door for personal use was built in the center of the larger door. Sharon, 2004, p. 42. A smaller secondary entrance was located at the building's northern side, vertically parallel of the main entrance.
